Nice write up Bruno. Just remember, just because your friend is in music doesn't mean he hears things the same as you(his hearing could even be damaged?), as he said, with speakers of this quality you can't go wrong and you should feel very good about your choice.

FYI, a former active forum member's wife is a Cello player and she picked the M80s over the M60s as they sounded more real to her when we did tests with the M60/M80s \:\)

More importantly, do you want to belong to the club with the coolest secret handshake and decoder ring or not. M80s all the way! ;\)


FredK, you have no choice but to show it to me now \:D \:D \:D


Patience grasshopper, patience...

Your friends comments are interesting. Both speakers measure very flat across their entire frequency range.

Nice write up indeed. I hope to visit the axiom homestead some day. In the end what matters the most is what sounds best to you.

Good choice (coming from a fellow m80 owner)

Thanks you all.

I am sure my friend still hears pretty well !!! specially after our audition !!! LOL.

What only comes down to is preference, he liked better the 60s, I the 80s. I'm still not sure what I liked more about them but I loved them! My wife is starting to get jealous!
